A woman involved in a failed ban on marijuana operations in Fairbanks has
been appointed to the board that regulates Alaska’s legal marijuana
The law setting up the five-member Marijuana Control Board calls for up
to two members who are actively involved in the industry though one of
those seats could go to a member of the general public. Nicholas Miller
retains an industry seat on the board.
Matt Shuckerow, a Dunleavy spokesman, says it’s no secret Stiver “holds
a certain skepticism for legal marijuana use,” which he says is a viewpoint
other Alaskans share.
He says Dunleavy thinks her appointment will help bring a valuable
perspective to the board.
